Escuadrón de fusileron britanicos.

  • The rifle squad are the basic infantry of all factions. Equipped with semi-automatic or bolt-action rifles, they also carry the basic tools of infantry. Riflemen can perform any duty or function, acting as a cheap screen, co-tank capacity or to protect the mortars and artillery. They should be used in a range, such as rifles allow a wide tremendous advantage and accuracy of conventional weapons, the only drawback is its rate of fire and reload speed. The rifle loadouts for each faction is shown below:
  • MP: 7
  • CP: 18
  • Weapons: 6 x EM-3 (Lee-Enfield bolt-action)
  • Equipment: 6 x AP grenades, 1 x AT grenades, 20 x medkits, 6 x breastworks
  • Squad: 6 x Riflemen
  • Remark: These riflemen are most effective at long and medium ranges, however, in close combat, they become easy prey for Submachine Gunners and Assault Squads. The British frequently used the Lee-Enfield for the only reason that they did not have another sufficient mass-produceable infantry weapon. With tank support, the Riflemen could support tanks (that otherwise had no mean of defending themselves against infantry threats) against German grenadiers. It was only until the introduction of the Sten SMG that close-combat could be achieved.
